Lincoln Continental gets suicide doors for 80th Anniversary Edition

Known as the Coach Door Edition, production will be limited to just 80 units.

Lincoln has revealed a special-edition Continental featuring suicide doors, reviving a feature that distinguished the nameplate in the 1960s. 

Known as the 80th Anniversary Coach Door Edition, the Continental has been modified to shift the rear door hinges from the B-pillar to the C-pillar toward the rear of the car. The change is said to have required a six-inch extension to the sedan's wheelbase, with extra rear legroom as an added bonus.

Rear seat passengers are also treated to a few unique amenities including a pass-through center console with a stowable tray table, tablet holder, and wireless charging pad. The car also boasts Black Label premium materials. 

"People appreciate elegance and glamour," says Lincoln design director David Woodhouse. "And they want the easiest way to get in and out of a vehicle. These doors answer to both." 

The 80th Anniversary Coach Door Edition will be limited to just 80 units.
